17: The other components of the photosytem II are as follows

  • Chlorophyll a 660
  • Chlorophyll a 670
  • Chlorophyll b
  • Phycobilins

20: In an oxygenic Photosynthesis, water is used as the electron donor.

22: Types of light dependent reactions are as follows

  • Cyclic
  • Non-cyclic

23: LHC stands for Light Harvesting Complex

25: Light-dependent reactions take place on the thylakoid membranes

26: Hill and Bendall proposed ‘Z-Scheme’.

27: The products of light reaction are as follows

  • ATP
  • O2

28: RuBisCO is the precursor of the Calvin cycle.
